Bill always appreciated the knowledgeable management of the fleet by Bob and treated him respectfully, often taking him into meetings on trips with him. In one meeting of company heads, when told that Bob would have to leave when the meeting started, Bill replied, “If Bob leaves, I leave.” Bill had a deep trust in Bob’s ability to judge character and felt that he benefited greatly from it. Plus, Bob took great notes. Bill would rely on Bob for details of the meeting afterward. As the years passed, Martha and I got to know and become friends with Bob during Bill’s visits. We shared Bill’s high opinion of Bob.
